I've been working on the blog this past week adding pages and new graphics. I've changed the red for blue and bordered posts. The page tabs are new, too. Now instead of going to one of the web sites you can just look at the links here.
Look to the right of the page for links to my stores, places that sell my patterns, galleries, and more. The link to the search, translate, and blog archive are on this side, too.
Look to the left for the links to my mirror web sites, a quick link to my etsy store, a featured post, and blog labels to make searching the blog easier.
I finally finished a new crochet pattern. It's similar to the lucky penny crocheted shamrock I designed but this one is perfect for brides. I designed this flower to hold a coin for brides who wear sandals or other shoes that can’t hold a lucky coin. Think how special it would be to make one for a bride with 2 pennies in it. One with her birth year and one with the grooms. Or how about the year they met or got engaged and the year of the wedding. Make them with wedding year pennies for gifts to give to the Moms and Bridesmaids. You could also make them for shower favors. There are plenty of photos and I even include directions on cleaning the coins. I've kept the price low because I'm only selling it as a PDF, meaning you have to download it and print it yourself. Right now it's only at Etsy but as soon as I start selling at ebay again I'll list it. I took the summer off from selling at ebay but I'll be getting things back up there this week.
